"The X-Men Are on the Way" TV commercial:
"They Fear You" TV commercial:
"X-Men Celebration" featurette:
"X-Women" promo clip:
This is getting slaughtered in the reviews
Even if it sucks it’s still the end of an era because it’s the last Fox movie since Disney owns it now so I’ll see it.
"The X-Men's Greatest Enemy" TV commercial:
yeah that's what I am seeing too this movie is getting crushed right now. I had a feeling that this franchise wouldn't last without wolverine and there aren't any likeable characters on the roster and they have new actors playing those roles every other movie. Better to wait for the new mutants movie that comes out in august
The first half was boring as shit but it really picked up in the second half.
It was ok. With the reviews I didn't have high expectations but as a summer movie it's fine. It's better than Apocalypse. Also I agree with @Duffman that the last half really picked up.
I'm guessing it will not do well though. I got there 15 minutes early and was the only one in the theater. About 10 minutes before two special needs people came in. That actually improved the experience because with only 3 people we gave no fucks and talked the entire time.
Initial earnings (Thursday and Friday) have it tracking as a bomb
Honestly the only X-Men movie I've liked was First Class. By the time they got to Days they had bastardized the series again.
I'm still waiting for them to get Beast and Quicksilver right.
Reboot and recast and make this the base for the next Marvel run before you have to reboot Avengers (which they now need to).
Are you recommending they abandon the MCU, or insert the X-men into the MCU?
Reboot the MCU starting with the X-Men.
The way they've gone, they technically wouldn't have to "reboot" the MCU. They could conceivably just say the X-Men are part of a different multi-verse
This film is such a total failure, both critically hated and a box office bomb:
- critically-hated: 23% on RottenTomatoes, the worst of any film in the Fox X-Menverse
- the first X-Men film, and one of the rare Big Two (DC/Marvel) superhero films, to not have a #1 opening weekend (losing to The Secret Life of Pets 2)
- $33 million opening weekend, not just the worst of any X-Men film, but the worst by a large margin, the only one not to clear $50 million
- Deadline: "Dark Phoenix Bound to Lose $100M+ After Worst Domestic Opening in X-Men Series"
Good riddance to Fox's mismanagement of the franchise, and looking forward to Disney's MCU reboot of the X-Men, though that might still be years away.
Is it worth $5 tonight at a Marcus Theater, or should I go see Rocketman?
So I'm just gonna wait and rent this when I'm bored but I've been reading about it anyway and I can't believe how fucking bad the continuity is.
So Jean gets her Phoenix powers from the Phoenix Force that hits the ship in this movie...but she ALREADY HAD THEM IN X-MEN APOCALYPSE. Seriously, WTF? That was like the surprise reveal of that movie and how they beat Apocalypse. How lazy can you get?
Well, it wasn't THAT bad, but it was just a meh and uninspiring movie, no wonder that it bombed big time. Nothing new, nothing great and a lot of reactions or transitions without a motive or a reasonable process behind. Since Sansa is in this, can we check if the GOT writers were somehow involved?
